Playing around and learning the manual setting of my NIkon D40. Still learning about aperture, shutter speed, ISO and exposure levels. Here's some sample photos taken in my backyard.

FUN is watching 125 Australians playing Footy in the rain. We managed the 2009 Manila Cup Australian Rules Football Tournament for PAFL at the Manila Polo Club last Saturday. Thanks to Ben (totbenru) for lending me his Canon 5DMarkII and his ginormous 70-200 F4 lens. (At least that's what I think it is) Some of the photos are a bit blurred -- I'm not sure if it was because the camera was so heavy I couldn't keep it steady or if it was because I was shivering in the rain. Don't ask me about settings and stuff LOL because I just kept my eye on the boys er the ball, clicked away and trusted Photoshop for adjustment because although the lighting was horrible, the action was great!

My favorite subjects were Luke (3rd from left) and Stuch (5th from left) for obvious reasons. Their team, the Hong Kong Dragons won the tournament for the 2nd year in the row.

For basic gear, cost is affordable. Once you are hooked though (or as obsessed as me and the others here), cost is far far far far far more than a P3. It's even more expensive than a pool table!

Welcome ThaQeLa! Cool photos! I recommend you upload them at Photobucket or other photo hosting sites then just link them here. Our photos will have large sizes and will eat up this site's storage.

Here is a link to a very interesting lighting tutorial:

Kitakits sa linggo! Sasali ako dahil rotation to at umaatikabong chambahan nanaman to!!!!!!!!! Eka nga ni Master Pacman, "sa uno, dos at tres, lakasan mo tira pag madulas ang mesa!" Thanks Vic! :-D :-D :-D
Ishtiki mainit na mainit ang tira ko ngayon! Baon ka ng camera para kunan mo ko sa finals a!!!! ahehehehe

trans: See you all this Sunday at the TourStop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
